U.S. Zinc is committed to a sustainable approach for our products. Almost every particle of input is used in our production cycle. Our processes result in an efficient use of raw materials, most of which is spent materials purchased from continuous and hot dip galvanizers. By reclaiming the zinc in these spent materials, we encourage reduced waste and re-use of materials across the spectrum.
We purchase zinc metal secondaries as raw material feed to produce certain types of zinc oxide, dust, metal and fines products. U.S. Zinc is one of the largest zinc buyers of spent zinc bearing materials, globally.
We believe our ability to consistently purchase a wide variety of dross and skims generated by steel companies and galvanizers ensures a greater ease of doing business than if sold to brokers.
Through our longevity, ethical standards and flexibility, we believe this helps the steel and galvanizing industry feel assured there will always be an outlet for their products that is receptive to their needs.
